El Hierro – Almost there?

Almost 10,000 small tremors in the past three months.


“The regional government of the Spanish Canary Island of El Hierro has issued a volcanic eruption alert following almost 10,000 small tremors recorded in the past three months,” says this article on yahoo.com.

The island was shaken late yesterday by a 4.3-magnitude quake.

As with all of the Canary Islands, El Hierro was formed by volcanic activity. El Hierro has some 500 volcanic cones.

  1. If it goes big, it could spell big trouble for Caribbean Islands and East Coast of USA. I wonder, if the ash cloud is picked up by a tropical disturbance coming off the African coast, could it intensify the storm? Any speculations out there?

  2. sneaks up on you:-) I checked news at 10pm aussietime and it was reporting 9,800 shakes, then a biggie hits.
    I hear Fukushima also got another 5+ today.
    be really interesting to see just how many quakes etc more we have had in the last year worldwide compared to say 5 yrs ago, for comparison. PTb keep saying it isnt anything unusual but somehow I doubt that.
    they’ve lied on so many other issues.
    today we have some Aus “experts” saying the alps here may be snow free by 2050
    really roared laughing:-) just like had /met/ipcc saying UK wouldnt see snow again…and theyve had 3 years of deep snowfalls
